Watch: Ji Sung, GOT7’s Jinyoung, And Kim Min Jung Have Drastically Different Views In Intense Highlight Video For “The Devil Judge”
Upcoming tvN weekend drama “The Devil Judge” released a new highlight video!
“The Devil Judge” takes place in an alternate-universe dystopian Korea where the entire nation participates in a live broadcast courtroom show. Ji Sung stars as the titular “devil judge” Kang Yo Han. Is Kang Yo Han a hero of the people in chaotic times, or is he a devil who wears the mask of the law?
The newly released highlight video shares a glimpse of the characters’ vastly different philosophies, goals, and personalities.
First off, Kang Yo Han shows his deep resentment towards humans, and he is someone who is more terrifying than criminals who have committed crimes. His voiceover announces the beginning of the broadcast courtroom show, saying, “Everyone, your court will now begin.” The video shows glimpses of Kang Yo Han’s dark side as he seemingly gets revenge against those who did wrong.
Then there’s Kim Ga On (GOT7’s Jinyoung), an associate judge who questions Kang Yo Han’s motives. He asks, “Why is Kang Yo Han making things more bigger than they already are?” Kang Yo Han turns to Kim Ga On and explains, “A trial is a game. A game you can lose if you can’t prove [yourself]. It’s unfortunate, but there’s no such thing as justice in reality.”
The teaser shares a peek of Jung Sun Ah (Kim Min Jung) as well. She is an ambitious character with irresistible charms who approaches her nemesis Kang Yo Han with ease. She explains, “The world is a jungle. How can we be nice when we can barely survive by eating and biting each other?”
The second half of the clip depicts Kim Ga On’s rough life as he enters the judicial world. He faces all kinds of trials and tribulations, and he has to decide between what’s right and what’s wrong. The only one who faithfully remains by his side is Yoon Soo Hyun (Park Gyu Young), a skillful police detective in a regional investigation unit who is on the hunt for Kang Yo Han’s secrets.
Kim Ga On desires to judge criminals properly by using the law, but Kang Yo Han firmly sticks to his questionable ways. He pins Kim Ga On to the bookshelf and warns, “If you get in my way, you’ll pay the price.” They end up getting violent with each other, and viewers are left wondering: is Kang Yo Han a true hero or a devil in disguise?
